“There is a difference between being proud of your kid and displaying that on your refrigerator and sharing it on social media without consenting or discussing it with them in advance,” said Alexandra Hamlet, a clinical psychologist at the Child Mind Institute who specializes in mood and anxiety disorders.

Even if parents do ask their kid for permission first, Hamlet said “it’s really hard to have an adult conversation with a child about whether they want their stuff posted for the masses when they don’t even really understand the scope of the digital footprint.”
